Super Stay

Posted Dec 10, 2017
Everything was wonderful, the hotel was clean, nice staff. Convenient to downtown Hollywood and the bus stop connect you to other attractions. I'll recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Value for Money

Posted Nov 27, 2017
The room was lovely. It was an easy hotel to stay at. Location was ok, I wouldn’t walk around by myself but I’d say that is most areas. It was easy to catch a bus and train to universal studios instead of driving. Would recommend.

Disappointed

Posted Oct 25, 2017
Pulled up and was very disappointed, curb appeal was nothing like photo. Looked like a run down inn. Was scared to enter. The room itself wasn’t too bad, the shower handle was broke, floors weren’t very clean either. It does have potential! The other thing was the fact they let homeless people lounge and sleep in pool area. Nothing wrong with helping them , but give them a room or something. Did I mention the homeless walked into our room! Literally stepped out to get ice and they walked right in where my son was still in there sleeping! Not cool

Surprisingly lovely

Posted Aug 2, 2017
Pros: We loved the contemporary feel of the newly renovated room and bathroom. The central location is perfect. The pool is a must during summer.
Cons: Breakfast offering was minimal; bagels & packaged danishes. No cold running water, only warm and hot. Renovations happening during our stay, but ok.
Location: Great location. Central enough to walk to Hollywood Blvd. Lots of choices for restaurants withing walking distance. Short drive to Griffith Park.
When we pulled up to the hotel we were initially a little reluctant about the place, based solely (and superficially) on outside appearance. However, once we saw the lovely pool and our contemporary room, we were delighted. This is a gem of a place! The staff at check-in were polite and helpful. The bathroom had recently been renovated. The beds are comfortable. Parking is safe and secure, with a security gate. We didn't fear our car being broken into. The pool is a great bonus, especially during our mid-summer stay. In addition, the location is central enough to walk to Sunset Blvd. and Hollywood Blvd., which is what we did.

Newly-Renovated Rooms!

Posted Jul 19, 2017
Pros: Within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. Quiet facility and provided continental breakfast each day.
Cons: Leaving adequate towels and toilet paper for large groups.
Location: Restaurants, shops, etc.
The hotel rooms are newly renovated, nice and spacious! The hotel staff was personable and helpful when an issue arose. The only drawback we had was always having to request toilet paper as the maid never left an additional roll even when the previous roll was over half gone. We also had the same experience with towels. We had four people in our room and were never left adequate towels sufficient enough for a large group.

Great location, terrible breakfast

Posted Jul 5, 2017
Great location for Hollywood, Universal Studios and easy to get to. Room was beautiful and new but the outside is very worn. Breakfast was just some bagels and coffee plus sugar snacks.

I got what I paid for... sorta.

Posted Jul 3, 2017
Pros: Close to the people I was visiting. Comparatively low rate for the room.
Cons: Overall cleanliness. Better breakfast bar, if you're going to offer it.
Location: On a busy street. Did walk to Hollywood Forever Cemetary. Wouldn't walk anywhere around here after dark.
I knew this was a budget hotel. That's what I can afford. It was close to the people I was in town to visit. What I didn't know until I arrived was that it was under renovation. The 1st room I was given had a workman hanging drapes in it. I went back to the front desk and got another room, probably quieter than the 1st one would have been. The pool area was dirty, with the carpet around it partially stripped. The breakfast bar was minimal, which is fine, but the coffee was horrible and the juice weak - I poured both out after 1 sip. Would I stay here again? Probably not.
